A little kiss...

Hey Everyone,

I have managed to finish my card today. The image is "A little kiss" by s.w.a.l.k from Crafters Companion.
It is such a cute image and I can see tons of ways to use it for anniversaries and Valentines etc.

I have used an Eiffel tower die from Marianne creatables. A LOTV circular sentiment and my new Spellbinder dies (which I have yet to properly play with). The Papers are Raspberry road and were a freebie from Cardmaking and papercraft magazine.

You can see some of the layers from here, including the Martha Stewart punched branches and a cream cherry blossom and 5mm ivory rosebuds from WOC.

I coloured using my usual Pro markers but also paper pieced the clothes for a bit of texture. The bow and hearts have glossy accents and there is just a smidgen of stardust.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafters Companion - #27 Best friends
I <3 Pro markers - #130 Gardens (Its the garden of love-paris)
Charisma Cards - #32 Monochrome
The sketchy challenge - #30 Chantal's sketch
Just some lines - Layer it up

I hope you like today's card, Thanks for stopping by...

Love Lou x
